    Jewel Studded Top

    On separate occasions I’ve written about embellished tops and color blocking and how I love them. Well luckily enough, one or two Christmases ago I was given this top that combines the two. Top: Loft Pants: Express Cardigan: Express Watch: Fossil Since the shirt is so thin and sheer, I paired it with a grey cardigan. I really threw this look together and didn’t really think anything of it, but I received quite a few compliments that day on it so I guess it came together better than I thought! I love the subtle color blocking in this top because so often we see such bold color blocking. While I am a fan of…

    Knotted Multi-Strand Necklace

    Normally I keep my look for work, in terms of jewelry, very simple. I wear a watch to work every day and on those rare occasions that I forget to wear one I feel lost. Sometimes earrings and a necklace once in a while as well. I prefer wearing long necklaces to work because they can dress up a simple outfit. Now since I prefer wearing long necklaces to work and long necklaces work best when you’re wearing a solid color top or else I find the look is too busy or the necklace can be hard to see when a print is in the background of the necklace. I’ve been a…

    Black & White Geometric Print

    Back to basics after a long weekend. The long weekend for Thanksgiving was nice and much needed. It’s the longest break I’ve had since August. Mondays are always hard, but the Monday after a break is the worst. It’s like you’re starting all over. So this past Monday, my OOTD was definitely a back to basics kind of day. I wore black and white, but mixed it up a bit by wearing a geometric print top. Top: Express Pants: Loft The top is loose and wide at the shoulders. I think if you wore it more casually, you could wear it off one shoulder, but obviously I didn’t do that since I was…

    November Favorites

    The holiday season is definitely upon us and the last month of the year has begun. I can’t believe it’s already December! Here is a round-up of some of my favorites from the month of November. Some are included in the little collage below. November Favorites by lifeaccordingtojamie featuring Sigma Beauty makeup brushes Favorite Makeup Item: I had a hard time deciding what was my favorite item of the month in terms of makeup. I decided on the Smashbox Photo Finish More than Primer Blemish Control Primer. This primer is so silky smooth and feels like a moisturizer. It’s a nice change from the silicon-y type primers I’ve been using in…

    Blazer & Lace

    Yesterday I wrote about bright colors and today I’m bringing you a monochromatic look. I went out for my friend’s birthday Friday night and knew I wanted to wear this striped lace top, which has a beautiful back (which I forgot to photograph). Not only is it sheer lace, but it is sleeveless so not ideal for the cold temperatures that night. I decided to wear this one button blazer and I felt like it really completed the look and gave it a really sophisticated feel. I then paired it with nude wedges to play off the stripes of the top and do something different than black heels. I was…

    Open Stitch Sweaters: Yea or Nay?

    Time for another addition of Yea or Nay! Today I’m here to ask your thoughts on open stitch sweaters. I love the look, but I find they can be hard to work with or find a good time to wear them at times. When it’s late summer/early fall like September or early October for example, it might still be warm out and you don’t want to wear a big sweater. The weather usually takes a turn for the cold pretty suddenly. For real, it always seems to take a drastic turn. One day you’re rocking thin blouses and the next you need to break out the Uggs. So one day…

    Floral Stitching

    The weather has turned from cool, autumn days to pretty chilly seemingly overnight. To top it off the past two days have been windy and a little rainy. Therefore, my color palette hasn’t been the brightest as of late. This could also be affected by the fact that I’ve been so tired lately! I wore this grey 3/4 sleeve top yesterday with dark jean skinnies and boots. The top has white floral stitching on the front. The brightness of the white stands out perfectly against the blue-ish grey of the material. The jeans look almost black in these pictures, but they are actually a very dark blue denim so my…

    Polka Dot Layered Top OOTD

    It’s a brand new week and I have a new OOTD for you all. However, it’s technically an outfit from last Friday. Maybe it’s wishful thinking on my part that it was still the weekend! So today I’m showing you a layered look. It is one piece, but looks like separates and I love the effect. Top: Loft Jeans: Loft Shoes: Keds Crash Back Slip-on Sneaker via DSW Watch: Fossil I don’t remember exactly where I got this necklace from, but I feel like it was from JCrew Factory. I loved pairing this necklace with the top, because the top has this casual, classy vibe with it’s grey and white combo. It looks classy…

    Stretch Cords

    Stretch cord pants. Are. Life. Seriously, they are my favorite pants to wear to work. They look work appropriate because they essentially look like a very thin lined cord or corduroy pant, but they are stretch so you’re walking around in the most comfortable pants ever all day. Here’s a secret – the button at the top is even fake and it’s all elastic on top. Best thing ever. Cardigan: Chadwicks Top: Loft Pants; Uniqlo Shoes: Chinese Laundrey via DSW I love that the pinwale (the lines) are so fine on these pants. In the past, I have had wider pinwale pants, but these fine lines look more youthful and fresh whereas I feel like…

    Paris Print OOTD

    Over the weekend, I went out for dinner for my mom’s birthday. I knew days ahead of time what I wanted to wear, not because it was a fancy occasion by any means, but just because. The day came and it was chilly, rainy and windy. Despite the fact that I wanted to wear a warm sweater or even a hoodie instead, I decided to stick with my original outfit idea. I wore a military blouse with a fun Paris print on it. It’s very thin (part of the reason I was debating whether to wear it or not) but such a fun print and I feel like the colors lend themselves really…
